I'd like to narrow the list of objects in the data source explorer to just a list of databases. I added a filter, and i now see that the tree has been filtered, but i have to dig deep to find where a specific database is.
I want to see a simple tree like one sees in sql assitant:
- database_name 3
There are a couple of ways to filter the tree display. One is the way you mentioned with a Filter. You can select just the databases and users you want to see or provide a 'like' clause filter. You can also change the list of databases and users that are loaded through the Data Source Explorer Load Preferences. Go to Window>Preferences, then choose Teradata Datatools Preferences>Data Source Explorer Load Preferences.
You can also switch to a flat view of databases and users by unchecking the preference 'Show Databases and Users in Hierarchical Display'.
Flat view and filtering on the databases I want worked great, thanks!
